Class, Youth Maker Monday, Youth Ages 12-14, Youth Ages 14-16

Welding & Sheet Metal Studio



Use your imagination to combine scrap parts to make pieces of art to take home, like a steel minion, an animal, or whatever you dream up. 

In this three-week class, you'll begin with a safety briefing in our welding and sheet metal shop, then learn how to use all the tools you need to prepare and build your creations: cutters, grinders, vices, and spot welders.

If you've taken welding classes at BARN in the past, this is a chance to get more hands-on time with the equipment and refine your skills. 

Get ready to make some sparks fly!
